Sea Hunt: Mark of the Octopus


Published 1958



Mike Nelson (Lloyd Bridges) is hired to investigate the disappearance of two scuba-diving geologists.

Originally aired on 1 February 1958 (Season 1, Episode 4).

Don't bother downloading the h.264 file; the Cinepack file from which it is derived is smaller.



Here's how to verify that the copyright on this episode was not renewed after 28 years.

Go to the website of the Copyright Office:
http://cocatalog.loc.gov
Set search limits to "Motion Pictures". Search for "sea hunt", and then sort by "Full Title". Among the results you will see:

[21] Sea hunt Sea hunt; television motion picture. No. 1002. By Ziv Television Programs, Inc. RE0000288982 1958
[22] Sea hunt Sea hunt; television motion picture. No. 1003. By Ziv Television Programs, Inc. RE0000288983 1958

[25] Sea hunt Sea hunt; television motion picture. No. 1007. By Ziv Television Programs, Inc. RE0000288986 1958


Note that No. 1004 is missing. 1004 would be the designation for episode 4 of season 1, the title of which is "Mark of the Octopus", according to IMDb.

Furthermore, this is the only episode of the series that is sold by a certain well-known distributor of public-domain movies and television shows (A.V.).

Forgot how good this TV show was.This show maybe a little tame by today's standards,but for me it is still a set on the edge of your seat program.Wish you had more of these episodes. I gave it a rating of 5 for the story and acting.I don't know who wrote the music but it sure fit the show.
